Youth (6th-12th Grades)

Youth Ministry at St. Michael’s aims to equip children, youth, young adults and parents to be a thriving community of disciples dedicated to loving God and our neighbors.  

  • Know and Grow in God’s Love
  • Live joyful hope with our neighbors
  • Support and Equip each other

We strive to….

Follow God’s example, as dearly loved children  and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Ephesians 5 :1-2

Forms & Documents

Youth in the confirmation program: please use the assessments for studying. On Wed, Dec. 9 we will take these assessments in class. Assessments help the pastors know what to teach and if a lesson needs some review, for the whole group. It is a tool to help us teach the Gospel and Lutheran doctrine effectively.
